Florals and Forests with Mixed-media and Watercolor

Pamela Sue Johnson
Wed Eve Oct 19

[back to quicklinks]
$ 120  

In this workshop we will explore using watercolor with mixed-media to create layered, textured artworks full of floral beauty and forest love. Great for ALL levels !
You will be guided step by step in how to use transfer paper to lay down the drawing before painting. Using a loose watercolor style you will discover how forgiving and indulgent watercolor painting can be when it is approached with a playful brush. We will use floral references and in the second half of class we will turn our attention to creating lush and loose mixed-media watercolor forests. This is a satisfying process that gets the creative juices flowing. All levels are welcome. Beginner friendly as well as helpful for the seasoned painter. I will show you ways to loosen up your grip and allow the art to flow through you in an enjoyable, free flowing style to create floral paintings as well as forest scenes.
